Students will face many new exciting challenges and opportunities in the Global Citizenship Program, but they will face these challenges in the context of a supportive community of their peers. Just as we teach students to understand and appreciate the unique aspects of the various ancient and modern cultures we study in the GCP (Acts 17: 26-28), so also do we encourage students to discover and develop the unique, God-given talents that each one of us possesses.

These gifts and abilities were given to us so that we may serve others, and together as a corporate body we may grow into maturity (Eph. 4:7-13). This means that my development as an individual is contingent upon my contribution to a local community; and likewise, the development of community depends upon its individual members growing in their God-given gifts (Eph. 4:7-13).

By learning to serve others in the local and global communities, an individual becomes more– not less– of the person God created them to be.
